Hosted by food magazine, Native Tongue, The Chopping Block, and Green City Market, this hands-on culinary experience guides attendees through the home-cooking cycle, from grocery shopping to meal preparation, to introduce healthy eating at home.

The workshop includes the following learning stations:

  • A-LIST: Get the Most from your Grocery List

  • QUICK AND EASY: Healthy Meals in Little Time
  • CHOPPIN’ LIKE KARATE: Knife Skills

Funds from this event will support magazine distribution in Native Tongue's effort to make good food and healthy eating accessible to all. Additionally, 10% proceeds of all purchases from The Chopping Block will benefit Native Tongue.

For each person in attendance, Native Tongue will contribute a copy of our Spring 2017 issue to families in need at KIPP Charter Schools. 10% proceeds of all purchases from The Chopping Block will go to Native Tongue as well.
